White lights and fresh greenery are just two of the things I love to when putting together decorations for our home. However, I dislike having all the crumbling, dried needles falling all over the place. So, I went in search of an answer to my problem and I think I found one. 

How to use glycerin to help preserve your Christmas greenery.

Fresh greenery clippings

1. Mix 1 part Glycerin to 2 parts water in a container of your choice. You can also do 1 part Glycerin and 1 part water if you wish but I have had success with the 2 to 1 ratio.
2. Add your freshly clipped greenery and allow it to sit in the mixture for at least 24 hours. You can then remove it, dry the ends and use to decorate.
